Imagine you're on the bubble of the World Series of Poker Main Event with a stack of about 220,000 and you pick up pocket queens. You could sit back and try and cruise into the money, but you're here to win dammit. Time to get some chips. An opponent raises and you call along.

Bottom Dealing 430x286
Just watched a video of an interview with Matt Salsberg regarding an incident that went down at the Golden Nugget Summer Series Main Event. According to Salsberg, one of the dealers started base dealing and he claimed that he saw this happen in a couple of spots. He called the floor and the dealer was subsequently taken out of the event. Base dealing.

Phil Wins 10th 430x286
Prior to the beginning of the 2014 World Seires of Poker, one of my predictions was that Phil Ivey would win his 10th career bracelet this summer and Daniel would not win a bracelet. Phil Ivey won his 10th career bracelet late last night in the $1,500 Eight-Game Mix. Here's a little tribute video I found on the internet to mark the occasion.

Angle Shooter 430x296
In this age of hyper-political correctness, it seems odd that poker is continuing to allow certain allegations go unchallenged and virtually ignored. Lately, there have been a couple of different incidents where players have been accused of angle shooting. The most recent incident involving Brandon Cantu resulted in a physical altercation during a WSOP event. And the worst part about the recent allegation was that it came from a person that was not in a hand.
